Beacons collect data relevant to your application and send that data to Hrbr.
Beacons can be provided by Hrbr, customized by the end customer, or completely written from scratch by a developer. All Beacons are open source and can be modified by customers at their discretion in order to implement the hooks that are important to them.
Pre-written Beacon templates can be found in the Hrbr Beacon Catalog.
Beacons are completely customizable and can be utilized to send in any string of data that is important to you. Today we have customers using beacons to send in:
- System metrics
- Web Application metrics
- Latency metrics
- Web form tracking metrics
- Locational information
- ... and much more
Beacons need to be configured with your API key and then registered with the system. The first step is creating your beacon.
Developers can also share their custom Beacons/integrations with other Hrbr customers via the Beacon Catalog.
Any questions about beacons ... join our Developer Community and drop us a Slack and one of our Hrbr Pilots can help you out!
